The perfect gift for motoring and technology enthusiasts - a guide to the history and future of cars.
Cars are one of the most significant human creations. They changed our cities. They changed our lives. They changed everything. But in the next thirty years, this technology will itself change enormously. If Google get their way, are we all going to be ferried around in tiny electric bubble-cars? Or will we watch robots race a bionic Lewis Hamilton? And what about the future of classic cars?
In Autopia, TV presenter and journalist Jon Bentley celebrates motoring's rich heritage and meets the engineers (and coders) who are transforming cars forever. From mobile hotel rooms to electric battery technology; from hydrogen-powered cars to jetpacks, Autopia is the essential guide to the future of our greatest invention. Fully designed with illustrations and photographs, this will be the perfect book for car and technology enthusiasts everywhere.
Jon Bentley is a presenter on The Gadget Show on Channel 5. He was formerly producer and executive producer of Top Gear for twelve years, helping to launch the TV career of Jeremy Clarkson. He is a car enthusiast and writes regular columns for Classic Car Weekly.
